9 year old Thoroughbred mare: generally good attitude and loves her job, but has moments when she gets either nervous or upset/anxious. Triggers are not consistent other than separation from other horses and frantically pacing her stall to go out in the morning.
Chiropractor been out many times. Most recently she was again adjusted and we did acupuncture. It certainly helped in the moment but the horse is still not 100% happy.
We have tried depo earlier in the year when her behavior seemed more hormonal. It didn’t do a whole lot, but it seemed to help some.
She is simply not at peace, and the vet says perhaps she has Liver Yang Rising according to traditional Chinese medicine. She shows most, if not all, symptoms. Herbs are too expensive from the vet.
I was thinking about putting her on red raspberry leaves again (I had her on them a year ago, and maybe they helped??).
I’m also hoping to get some energy/body work done on her, but something in her foundation needs to be solved because she is just not happy.
We have tried accommodating her environment to make her as happy as possible, but to no avail. Sometimes she seems to get better, and then she has anxious outbursts again.
